Senior Scholarships for Pupillage
These are the Inn's most prestigious scholarships, awarded to four pupils of exceptional merit.
To reflect this distinction the scholarships are conferred by the Treasurer at the Pupil Course Trial Exercise
The next Senior Scholarship application period (for pupillages commencing 2020*):
- opens 18 November 2020
- closes 6 January 2021
*Please email the scholarships team for further information if your pupillage does not commence in the Autumn.
If shortlisted, viva voce interviews will be held in February (exact interview dates will be published on the online application form).
All successful candidates will be awarded a £5,000 merit based scholarship.
As with all major scholarships the general application process is the same, with the following additions for Senior Scholarship applications:
- Candidates must have passed the BPTC / Bar Course examinations unconditionally at their first attempt to be eligible to apply
- Candidates who are invited to interview will undertake a viva voce examination
There are four Senior Scholarships:
